Hi Everyone, I just came across this site looking for pointers and tips. I just got my Canon Rebel XS about a week ago and I've been taking pictures like crazy. My motivation for buying the camera was that a family friend took photos at my brother's wedding and his turned out much nicer than even the hired photographer. Then I thought it'd be great to capture my nephew growing up. Here are a few that I picked from the bunch. Any pointers would be great. I'm trying really hard to take photos that look better and different/unique than photos taken with a point and shoot. I'm having a hard time with it, and when I think I have a good pictures, I think I'm just being biased. SO, with that long story, please give me anything you've got. I'm stuck on the whole aperture/shallow depth of field thing, but I figure i'd start off trying to perfect the one thing I liked most about my friend's wedding pictures. None of these have been touched up yet. Here goes: 1. I changed the White balance in Lightroom for this one and ended up liking the original one better (this yellowish picture below). 2. 3. This one is too yellow, and it looks better when I change the white balance to auto in Lightroom, but I don't know how to save it once I've changed it. Help there would be great! Also, I don't know why I like this picture and I haven't been able to replicate the effect (whatever effect it is, if you guys can figure it out, that'd be great).
